A dark brown color with a large head. The aroma was raisins and almonds. The flavor was nutty with the alcohol peaking through. Other flavors I detected were grapes, caramel, and smoke. This would be a great one to have on a cold day. Overall very good!

This is a great stout. Very powerful and complex. Quite aggressive. I would store these beers for some years, if I had the chance.

Bottling #60. Poured a deep brown color. Little head. Very roasted/malt aroma. Taste is malty with hints of chocolate. Hops slide in and linger with a pleasant bitterness. Wonderful. Have six and will age the others. Cheers to Alan!!!!!

Bottle. Batch 57. Dark ruby brown beer with a big beige head. Nice roasty aroma with a bit of fruitiness. Big rich beer that has a big caramel sweetness with an underlying roasty, fruity, slightly bitter taste. Very complex and very nice. Theres a little creaminess to it all, and while the alcohol is there, it doesnt overpower, just melds nicely with everything else. A bit of a raisney aroma and flavor (along with figs) and just a hint of hop spiciness.

Pours dark brown with a nice sized tan head. Roasty aroma with a hint of cherries. Roasted malt taste with a little bit of fruitiness. Finish is bitter. Well rounded. Full bodied. At 10%, it hammered me.

UPDATED: JUN 20, 2004 Batch 58 Very large off-white frothy head... excellent lacing and long lasting. Beer is a medium brown, plummy color. Aroma is a bit of smokey wood, chocolate, and apple. I dont like the smoke aspect of it. Taste is a very pleasant and smooth sweet chocolate, smoke, grape/raisin. The smoke in the flavor isnt as bad, as there is some sweetness to block it. A bit bitter, but not much. Really good.

Holy Goodness Batman!! Pours a mighty black death color with medium head. Aroma is laced with alcohol and smoke. The taste... Mmmmm, the taste... Rich malt that must have been smoked for days. Very rich and malty with a little bitterness. Oddly enough, the body was not very thick. Very nice brew, although I think I will resign from having it again until the weather turns to the coolness of autumn and winter. Mighty fine!

Batch 60 I tried this beer today when it was about 90 degrees out and humid as all hell. Probably not the best time to try this beer for the first time. This beer seems better suited as a winter warmer. Anyway, onto the beer. Pours dark brown with a small tan head. Similar raisin flavor to DFH raison detre. Not much in the hops department. This beer leaves a great flavor and feel in your mouth. High alcohol taste which adds to the warming effect. Great stuff.

Batch 57, Sampled June, 2004
Pours a dark amber, almost approaching black color. The beer is highly carbonated and is topped by a rocky brown head. A rich aroma of rum, raisins, and smoke is found in the nose. The smoke aroma comes to dominate the nose after a couple of sniffs. The taste is sweet and thick, this is a very rich beer. I get flavor notes of fig, raisins, rum, vanilla, aged wood, peat, and scotch.. This is pretty good stuff. I really like the subtly smokiness, it adds another dimension and does not over-power any of the other components. There are some spicy hop notes and a fruitiness that if not hop derived is certainly accentuated by them. The finish is warming from the alcohol, but only in a smooth good way. Overall this is quite the malty brew, it does have a bit of balancing bitterness in the finish, but only just enough.
